Holyfield at age 46, is 0-3-1 in his last 4 bouts and has clearly lost his power and ring dominance with age.
Valuev, 49-1, weighs 310lbs., nearly 100 pounds more than Holyfield and is the biggest fighter to ever hold a major belt.
In recent years, Holyfield has struggled financially. He’s pays nearly 500K annually in child support(11 kids) , owes creditor close to $12million and is possibly facing foreclosure on his Georgia mansion. Most would say he’s fighting for the money, but his payday, at the most, will be $1million.
With a win, though unlikely, Holyfield will become the oldest fighter to win a championship fight. This would also be his fifth time winning a championship belt. Will he stun all the pundits and naysayers, or will he be another in a long line of great fighters that don’t know how to bow out gracefully.
